'A born storyteller' Kate Atkinson

Présentation de l'éditeur

The secrets in a woman's heart are deeper than the ocean…
For May Smith, travelling with her husband and baby girl Ellen, stepping foot on the Titanic marks the start of an incredible journey, one which is destined to take her from the back streets of Bolton to the land of opportunity: the United States.
But when the 'unsinkable' Titanic hits an iceberg one cold dark night, May's dreams are instantly shattered. Jumping from the sinking ship at the last minute, May loses sight of Joe and Ellen. Distraught, she is pulled into a lifeboat. Minutes later, the real-life Captain Smith swims to the lifeboat and hands May a baby swaddled in blankets.
Beside herself, and in virtual darkness, May believes the baby to be Ellen. This rescue is witnessed by fellow survivor, Celeste Parkes, married to an American industrialist who is on her way back to Ohio after her mother's funeral.
In horror, they both watch the death throes of the mighty ship; May traumatised, knowing her husband has drowned, Celeste wishing her bully of a husband had been on board and out of her life.
As the dawn comes up, and the two women are rescued by the Carpathia, a friendship is formed, one which is destined to transcend the Atlantic and social differences between them and last a lifetime. Then May makes a shocking discovery and a split-second decision which will change the lives of so many.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Wrong title, brilliant book 27 janvier 2012
Par Meesha - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
An excellent book, set around the myth that Captain Smith rescued a baby or a young child from the water after the Titanic sank. The book starts off with the Titanic and finishes in 1959, and although there are a couple of slow moments, it flies through the decades and with very short chapters, it's a fast read, even at nearly 600 pages long.

I found a lot of similarities between this and my other favourite Titanic fictional book, No Greater Love, by Danielle Steel. Both books deal with the Titanic and how it affects the lives of the characters for years afterwards. The characters in this were well thought out, and well described, so much so, you almost feel like you know them by the end of the book.

The only quibbles I do have with the book, are the title and the the Titanic itself. The Captain's Daughter is completely the wrong title for the book, as the person to whom it refers features very briefly, although there are one or two other brief references to her. Otherwise a totally different title would have fitted the book better. Whether the author was initially writing a different story, or whether it was the publisher's decision for that title, it was the wrong one. Also, yes I know everyone knows what allegedly happened on the Titanic by now, but the sinking happens by page 50 of the book. Although we had a nice introduction to the characters, I did feel it was a bit rushed and would liked to have seen the actual events expanded a little bit.

Quibbles aside, I recommend this not only to fans of the Titanic, but to anyone interested in a good historical read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very enjoyable reading! 10 février 2014

I really enjoyed this book.............hated to finish it because it was always a pleasure to pick up and read. Though I have always known about the Titanic disaster, it was interesting to think about the event in terms of the lives of survivors, the war in Europe that would follow shortly and the historical period in which it occured. The story flowed easily and the characters were very human.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Family Saga 22 février 2014

Format:Relié
The Captain’s Daughter opens with two very different women taking the famed ship Titanic to America, neither anxious to be aboard, and both unsuspecting of how the looming iceberg will shape their futures. Irishwoman May Smith is accompanying her husband and baby daughter in third class, hoping for a better life; first-class passenger Celeste Parkes is returning to her abusive husband after attending her mother’s funeral at home in England. When the women end up in a lifeboat together, Celeste takes the distraught May and her baby under her wing, and their friendship only solidifies as the years pass. May takes daughter Ella back to England, and Celeste eventually works up the courage to take her son Roddy and run away home. Celeste’s family takes in May and Ella as the First World War rages, and their lives continue to intermingle, even after May succumbs to a wicked infection. But her death is really only another beginning for Celeste and Ella; May leaves this world revealing a secret about that long ago night which will change everything.

Spanning from 1912 to 1959, The Captain’s Daughter ties the tale of the two women and their families to the night of the sinking. Ella’s survival is based on a legend of Captain Smith handing a baby into a lifeboat after the ship went down, while Titanic heroine Molly Brown makes an impression upon Celeste. The characters are vibrant and well drawn, with actions made believable through devastating circumstances. Not only do we experience the loss of the Titanic, but we also live through the tragedies of both world wars. My only complaint is that the book is a bit slow in spots, but the grand opening and even more heartfelt ending make it an entirely enjoyable saga in which to lose oneself. Recommended.

Thank you to the Historical Novel Society for providing a copy of this novel for review.

How would surviving the Titanic impact your life? Leah Fleming tells the story of two women who meet on the lifeboat along with the impact on their family members. The decisions made in those hours, along with the strength they developed, form the basis for this story. Love, heart ache, deceit, failure and success: these characters experience it.
